Forgiveness is the pathway to healing. If I, a 71 year old Black woman who has endured the sting of intergenerational insidious racist acts, can find the heart to truly forgive these centuries long atrocities, then healing is possible. I pray that God give me this grit, to turn the other cheek yet again and to cleanse my heart from residual wounds.Paula Brooks McLellanEllicott City, MD 21043August 21, 2019
